Intro to HTML5 Register Now →
HTML5 is the next major milestone in HTML and it's not just another incremental enhancement; it represents an enormous advance for modern web applications. A large number of HTML5 features are already supported in browsers, so it's time to start using them!
- Know how to use semantic HTML5 Markup
- Understand current browser support for the various HTML5 features
- Understand how to polyfill HTML5 features on older browsers
Our training takes a step-by-step approach, solidifying fundamental concepts and building on them to leave each attendee with a more thorough understanding of HTML5. Using a 50% lecture / 50% lab format, attendees will be able to put the concepts they have just learned to use after each section.
- HTML5 Overview
- Using HTML5 Today
- Video and Audio
- Drag and Drop
- Web Storage
- Web Workers
- Communication and Web Sockets
Attendees should bring a laptop with WiFi and a power cord, ready with a code editor and and browser. We strongly recommend the Google Chrome browser, although the latest Firefox (with the Firebug extension installed) will work in a pinch.
We also recommend one of the following text editors for Mac: TextMate, MacVim, Coda or Windows: E TextEditor, Notepad++, UltraEdit, but the most important thing is that attendees use a text editor they're comfortable with.
Prior exposure to any of these concepts will be helpful, but not required: AJAX, XML, jQuery, HTTP, REST.
